Real bread

Hello Everyone,

A few years ago, OH bought me a breadmaker for my birthday.  I love my breadmaker and I’ve gone through phases of using it.  Earlier this year I was making my own bread all the time, but then work and other stuff took over.

My brilliant breadmaker

The other day I realised that I didn’t like the shop bought plastic sliced bread I’ve been buying.  It was convenient, but tasted of nothing.  When I make my own bread it tastes completely different – it’s hard to describe, but it tastes more ‘bready’.  The texture is different too.  I put the ingredients in the hopper in the evening, set the timer, and when I get up in the morning, there is a lovely bread smell wafting through the whole house.

Real bread

This is the bread I made the other morning.  After it has cooled I slice it and put it in the freezer.  We normally get through 2/3 medium sized loaves a week.  Totally yummy!

Do you make your own bread?

Until next time, Tawney.

  1. I make my own bread with such good intentions, but it never, ever makes it as far as the freezer. While it’s still warm, I slice off the crust and one more slice, apply butter m m m m m m m and savour every last crumb. There’s only me, but that loaf rarely lasts more than three days. But as you say, it bears no comparison to shop bought bread and tastes divine. No added chemicals either to ‘improve’ the taste and the life of it.
